2020 Season Start-up

At this time, the projected start of the 2020 irrigation season is between April 15th – 20th. There was significant damage to the Maxwell Diversion and Maxwell Delivery Canal along the Umatilla River during the flood event. This damage has caused us to have to install a new bypass pipeline from the A-Line to the Maxwell Canal.

End of Season Update

There is still 6,000 acre feet of water left in Cold Springs Reservoir. However, demand has dropped and we are only sending 85 cfs down the A-Line Canal to feed the entire system. There is excess water in the ponds and drains as patrons take less and less water.

Due to current conditions, we estimate that we will start shutting down the system the week of October 15, 2019.
